things to do, places to eat

La Jolla Cove

Relax on the beach, picnic on the grass at Ellen Browning Scripps Park, or rent a paddleboard or kayak from La Jolla Caves Snorkel & Paddleboard Rental. You might see some (harmless) little leopard sharks swimming along the ocean floor beneath you!

The Cave Store

Access point to the stairs that lead through a bootlegger's tunnel to this sandstone sea cave sheltering birds & seals. NOTE: tickets can be purchased ahead of time, as this does sell out on weekends. Caves can also be seen via kayak or SUP.

Seal Rock

Who doesn't love watching seals and sea lions bask in the sun? Just remember to respect their personal space ❤️. Continue your marine life walk further south along the shore and stop by the La Jolla Tide Pools.

Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego

Permanent collections and temporary exhibitions of over 4,700 works created after 1950, as well as terraces featuring sculpture displays and ocean views, right across from the La Jolla Woman's Club! Check out for current & upcoming exhibitions.

Torrey Pines State Reserve

Multiple trail options for hiking on the cliffs overlooking Torrey Pines State Beach, sprawling all the way to the edge of the famous Torrey Pines Golf Course. Get some breathtaking panoramic views from tall viewpoints, then take paths and stairs down through the cliffs onto the beach.

Balboa Park

Home to the renowned San Diego zoo, a plethora of museums, gardens & beautiful Spanish Colonial architecture. Some highlights for Shirley and Cameron include the San Diego Museum of Art, San Diego Natural History Museum, Botanical Building, Spanish Village Art Center, San Diego Air & Space Museum, and the Inez Grant Park Memorial Rose Garden.

We look forward to celebrating with you!
